German brewery: 'Anti-aging' beer here

Story Tools


BERLIN, Germany (Reuters) -- A German brewery has developed a beer containing vitamins and minerals it says are designed to slow the aging process.

The Neuzeller Kloster Brewery plans to introduce its "Anti-Aging-Bier" this year and sell it in grocery and drug stores, a spokesman for the company said Friday.

"It tastes like beer more than it tastes like anything else," the spokesman told Reuters.

The brewery said the beer contained a host of added ingredients that promote good health.

But the German government may object to the brewery calling the drink "beer" since a law dating back to 1516 says beer brewed in Germany can only be made from barley, hops, yeast and water.
